I've been playing for over 10 years and I've owned several different brands of acoustic guitars. I have focused my ability to playing rhythm, primarily because most of my guitar playing has been leading worship. My last guitar was a special edition Martin dreadnought. I loved that guitar for its beautiful sound. But I seemed to have to adjust the action an awful lot. I went through some tough times financially due to illness and I pawned my wonderful guitar, never to be able to reclaim it. I know someone else is being blessed with it. So now came the new search. Boy are there a lot of guitars being made out there that sound like something out of a toy store. I have been playing, and reading about, and you tubing just about everything for the last six months and 99% of everyone on you tube believes the guitar they are playing is just so wonderful. Well who wants to admit the guitar they just spent over 2000 dollars on doesn't sound as good, or even come close to a beautiful, phenomenal, craftsman made Yamaha rosewood/ spruce top guitar, like this one I just got from zzounds! Perfect right out of the box! Best sounding playing guitar I've ever owned! I'm 63 years young and Yamaha has been making great guitars ever since I was a kid. The A5R is a total win!!! What took me so long?
